ONE THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED TWENTY!!!!!

From Chicago, Illinois to Mobile, Alabama along the River route  of the Chicago Sanitary and Industrial Canal, Illinois, Mississippi,  Ohio, Cumberland, Tennessee, Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, Black Warrior and Mobile Rivers we have cruised 1,320 miles!!!    We made it to Mobile this past Sunday, Nov. 13th.

The 40 days it took us to get here was interrupted by Hurricane Matthew by about 10 days, BUT – on a good note, our weather has been most co-operative for our cruising.

****NOTE*****    The previous blog post ,” Changes” , has been updated with a short video that you might enjoy viewing.   ***************

The wife of this plantation owner only stayed in Mississippi for less than a year, as she felt the “VAPORS” in the region were very unhealthy!!!   So she took her little self back to New York State.   Bless her heart!
